DCVB Takes Show On The Road Again This Spring
The Door County Visitor Bureau (DCVB) will again be taking the show on the road this spring to provide local constituents the opportunity to meet with staff members and other tourism industry representatives at different venues around the county.
Calling it Bureau On The Go, DCVB staff members will hold office hours at five different locations around the county, in addition to the DCVB office, to give members, potential members and community members the opportunity to visit, learn more, catch up, express any concerns or share ideas they may have. Tables will be set up for marketing & sales (including groups/meetings), communications & PR, membership, the Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA) program, publications/InnLine program, visitor information and administrative/CEO. No appointment is necessary and people will have the option to move from table to table in a round robin fashion if they so choose.
Six different sessions over 3 days have been scheduled around the county for April 1, April 9 and April 23, 2015. They include:
Wednesday April 1, 9:00 – 11:30 AM – Washington Island Mosling Rec Center (1877 Lakeview Rd, Washington Island)
Wednesday April 1, 1:00 – 4:00 PM – Sister Bay Village Hall (10693 N Bayshore Dr (Hwy 57), Sister Bay – across the street from Al Johnson’s)
Thursday April 9, 8:30 – 11:30 AM – Egg Harbor Bertschinger Center (7860 Hwy 42, Egg Harbor)
Thursday April 9, 1:00 – 4:00 PM – Baileys Harbor Town Hall (2392 County F, Baileys Harbor)
Thursday April 23, 8:30 – 11:30 AM – Brussels Town Hall (1366 Junction Road, Brussels)
Thursday April 23, 1:00 – 4:00 PM – DCVB Welcome Center (1015 Green Bay Rd (Hwy 42/57), Sturgeon Bay)
In addition to DCVB staff being available during the above sessions, David Spiegelberg, a Regional Tourism Specialist from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, will be on hand during the April 1 and April 23 sessions to discuss state related tourism issues and initiatives. Additionally, representatives from local business associations have been invited to attend and have their own table to answer questions, as has a Door County Tourism Zone representative.
For the third year in a row, DCVB President/CEO Jack Moneypenny is excited to bring DCVB staff a little closer to member partners and tourism constituents around the county for some quality conversation. “We’ve gotten very positive feedback from our partners about taking the show on the road, and once again look forward to visiting with everyone in person during ourBureau On The Go sessions in April,” he said.
The DCVB first began the Bureau on the Go initiative in the spring of 2013, and has hosted a dozen of these sessions from Southern Door to Washington Island during the first two years of the initiative. This year’s 6 scheduled sessions will bring the 3-year total to 18.
The DCVB is the official tourism marketing organization for Door County, whose mission is to generate incremental economic impact for the community by attracting visitors with strategies that ensure sustainable tourism.
